At Comfort Keepers® our elder care services in Hilliard, OH includes gentle transferring and positioning
One of the most annoying parts of growing old is struggling to move around the house. For many seniors, limited mobility simply becomes a fact of life. If you have an elderly loved one who faces this struggle but wants to continue living independently in their Hilliard, OH home Comfort Keepers offers elder care services that can help make this a possibility.
Our elder care services include skilled caregivers who are trained in physically helping your loved one move about their home safely. Their support can help reduce the risk of falls and serious injuries.
Transferring from Place to Place
At the very least, a person needs the ability to move about their home with minimal risk to their well-being. This could be getting out of bed and going to the bathroom to take care of toileting and bathing. It could be to the kitchen for a snack or meal, or perhaps to their favorite living room chair to watch TV. Proper transferring help from a Comfort Keepers® caregiver can make it easier for your loved one to move from place to place.
Assistance from a caregiver can:
- Reduce the risk of injury
- Reduce the temptation to skip on tasks like personal hygiene
- Provide your loved one with friendly companionship from someone trained to assist with several personal care and homemaking services
Positioning to Avoid Bedsores
Bed sores are one of the most common issues for anyone who is confined to bed or sits in a chair and cannot reposition themselves. Our caregivers are trained in transferring and positioning. They can help ensure your loved one moves during the day, helping to prevent painful bed sores that can quickly become infected.
Quality home care is an integral part of being able to continue living independently in their own homes for many seniors. Here at Comfort Keepers, we believe in doing whatever we can to improve the lives of those seniors who are entrusted to our care. From transferring and positioning to personal hygiene and light housework, we can help.
